Romancing the image

So I don’t forget what I did here I’ll post a rough guide to the steps I took using Photoshop and Corel Paintshop Pro.

1.   Convert to HDR and move Detail Slider to exaggerate detail.

2.   Adjustment-Channel Mixer.   Move Blue and Red channels sliders to emphasise colours.

3.  Filter-Artistic-Film Grain

4.  Filter-Sharpen-Smart Sharpen.   Use Gaussian Blur and adjust slider

5.  Take image to Paintshop Pro and add Frame.
